Politics By Graham Sharpe

Bercgow & Corbout?

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and Speaker, John Bercow, have both been well backed by political punters to lose their jobs before the end of the year, say bookies William Hill, with Corbyn now down from 2/1 (33% chance)  to Even money (50%) to be ex-Labour leader and Bercow in from 5/1 (16%) to 6/4 (40%) to be 'former Speaker' by the time January 1, 2018 arrives.

'Two of the highest profile politicans around are both facing persistent rumours, which are being backed up with substantial betting support, that they will both be on their way out sooner rather than later' said Hill's Media Relations Director, William Hill.
